Medhya Rasayanas

Medhya Rasayanas: Ayurveda’s power herbs

About 6,000 years ago, the Ayurveda system of medicine in India classified a group of herbs which were known for their cognitive enhancement properties, and which could offer human beings a boost to their physical and mental health.

These beneficial plants are collectively called Medhya Rasayanas, which in ancient Sanskrit means the essential path of intellectual life. When this path is found and followed, our minds and bodies can be nourished and rejuvenated, helping us to perform to our fullest potential. At Uplift we have formulated these Medhya Rasayanas to complement our digital environment. Advances in the modern world have a definite dark side, as we spend long hours on technological devices, both at work and at home. With our minds and eyes exhausted by internet-based work, our reliance on mobile phones, and an ever-increasing time spent in social media, our social interaction and outdoor activities have also been substantially reduced.

These changes to our daily routines are causing an alarming increase in physical and mental problems, such as stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression, as well as sleep and behavioural disorders. Often we try to combat these issues by resorting to synthetic supplements, or energy drinks which do our bodies even more harm. At Uplift we have formulated polyherbal Rasayanas in accordance with classical Ayurveda pharmacological principles. Our holistic approach is designed to help everyone achieve maximum synergy, so as to lead a healthy, happy and productive life.

Medhya Rasayanas can retard brain ageing, but they can also help to regenerate neural tissues by a process called dendritic arborisation, or dendritic branching. This process assists in regaining attention and concentration, and overcoming mental fatigue. It may also go some way towards alleviating the onset of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. Medhya Rasayanas promote healthy sleep, and provide a safe and natural cushion against the stresses of modern life. A daily Uplift supplement can improve memory, cognitive abilities and speech coordination, as well as giving you more overall vitality, longevity, and improved physical health.

Medhya Rasayanas are considered to be the most potent form of India’s Ayurveda medicine. They are designed to stimulate the healing intelligence of the mind and the body, and so to reverse diseases, and ultimately the ageing process itself. Many of these ancient and traditionally used herbs have been scientifically tested for their medicinal properties, and found to contain many life-giving natural compounds. These include antitoxins, analgesics and antimutagenic molecules, as well as the valuable antioxidants which are so important in scavenging dangerous free radicals.

The concept of Rasayanas is unique to Ayurveda, and it gives hope to a suffering humanity. Diseases and limitations may be overcome, health and vigour restored, and new energy found to deliver optimum physical and intellectual performance. After 6,000 years of tradition, it’s stunning to discover that the safety and efficacy of these medicinal herbs is confirmed by modern science. At Uplift we look forward to seeing these formulations playing a seminal role in improving our modern state of health.
